With so many great healthcare systems in the city, the need for medical waste disposal is great. Healthcare Waste Management offers medical waste Medical Waste Disposal Cleveland Ohiodisposal services including medical, biohazard, infectious and sharps container disposal.

Healthcare Waste Management is setup to save you money, it is our tag line “Reducing Waste, Risk & Cost” in fact we print it on all our trucks. With us it is more than just a saying, we invested in our business to be able to take care of your business.

We invested in the three critical contact points of your medical waste disposal process so we can service our clients with unparalleled customer service at the most economical pricing.

The three critical point we have identified as.

  1. Driver’s
  2. Transportation
  3. Disposal

We have chosen these three points for specific reasons. We will discuss them below.

The driver, if we do not directly employ the driver then we are left wondering how they are performing on the job if they were properly trained and what personality is coming into your facility. In short, we would lose a lot of direction over safety and job performance, not to mention cost. If a company does not directly employ this individual, that means they are paying another company to do this, in turn means they are paying more than just the drivers’ salary.

Transportation, the trucks that haul your waste play an important role. What if they are not maintained properly and frequently break down, what if they are not properly equipped to haul medical waste, what if they take routes that are not cost-effective. All these things can interrupt your service and affect your cost on a regular basis.  

Disposal, when a medical waste company comes into your office and picks up your waste, in most cases, that company is not the same company that destroys your waste. They haul it to a medical waste processing plant and pay another company to destroy your waste. We knew that was another cost savings opportunity for our customers if we owned the medical waste processing plants.

So, when looking for a medical waste disposal provider, ask these three questions.

  1. Are the drivers your direct W2 employees?
  2. Do you own the trucks that come to my office?
  3. Do you own the treatment plants that destroy my waste?

"At Healthcare Waste Management we answer Yes to all three, call us today for a quote in minutes."

Cleveland, OH Medical Waste FAQ and Related Searches

What is Medical Waste?

Medical waste is healthcare trash that contains infectious or potentially infectious items. It can come from hospitals, medical clinics, veterinary offices, dental clinics, research facilities, or medical laboratories. It can contain blood or other bodily fluids, or it can appear benign, like gloves or gowns.

According to the Medical Waste Tracking Act of 1988, it’s defined as any waste created during treatment, testing, immunization, research, or diagnosis of human beings and animals. Examples include sharps like scalpels or needles, tissue, fluids, glassware, swabs, culture dishes, or bandages.

 

What are some Examples of Medical Waste?
  • Expired vaccines
  • Tissue from humans or animals
  • Gowns, gloves, or gauze that may have blood on them
  • Waste from rooms of patients with infectious diseases
  • Needles, scalpels, and broken glass used in procedures
  • Laboratory cultures, stocks, and contaminated culture paraphernalia
  • Bedding from infected animals 
What are the types of medical waste?

The WHO identifies the 8 categories of medical waste as:

  • Infectious waste
  • Sharps waste
  • Pathological waste
  • Chemical waste
  • Cytotoxic waste
  • Pharmaceutical waste
  • Radioactive waste
  • Nonhazardous general waste

Those types cover all the potential varieties and sources of regulated and non-regulated healthcare waste.

Who generates medical waste?

You know hospitals and doctor’s offices create medical waste. But blood banks, dental clinics, and urgent care clinics create it too. Pharmacies, veterinary clinics, medical testing labs, research labs, nursing homes, hotels where patients stay, and funeral homes also create regulated waste.

Even an office building can generate biohazardous waste. Why? Because if someone gets a nosebleed at work and uses a tissue to stop it, they’ve created regulated waste. There was a hotel in Boston, next door to Mass General Hospital, was fined twice for medical waste violations from hotel guests.
